Frank B. Gale died this morning at 2 o'clock at St. Francis Hospital, where he came from his home at Oregon a little more than three weeks ago, suffering from heart trouble. He was a native of Ogle County, and was born on a farm near Oregon, October 1, 1857. With the exception of a few years spent in the south in an effort to improve his health, he has lived in Oregon all his life. He was a retired farmer, and since his retirement had been speculating in southern lands. About twelve years ago he married Miss Retta Licklyter who, with four brothers and an adopted niece, survive him. The brothers are Scott, Fred and Charles of Oregon, and James of Englevale, N. D. His father was an early settler of Ogle County, and the deceased was for several years Deputy Clerk of the Circuit Court of Ogle County. His brother Charles arrived in Freeport this morning and took charge of the remains, which were sent to Oregon this afternoon. No arrangements for the funeral have yet been made.
